Férjem 40.születésnapja alkalmából utaztuk el Mariazellbe hálát adni. A Bazilika impozáns külsejével lenyűgöző. Belseje szintúgy. Minden szombat este gyertyás körmenetet szerveznek. Habár egy szót sem... read more »My husband 40. birthday utaztuk to Mariazell for the give thanks. The impressive exterior of the Basilica is impressive. Inside as well as.

It always makes me happy to see how people around Europe are still devoted to Our Lady... The church is big and really special.
This is well worth a visit, even if you are 'not into' churches. The ornate alter and the beautiful ceilings are amazing.

Nestled high in the Alpine mountains of Austria, the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariazell is the most-visited Marian shrine in Central Europe, receiving about a million pilgrims each year. The basilica and shrine is located at the center of Mariazell, which is also a popular resort town, and its three west towers can be seen from around the city. The central tower is Gothic and was preserved from the 14th-century church; the two flanking Baroque towers were added in the 17th century. The Gothic portal with carved tympanum has also been preserved. Inside, the miraculous statue is housed in the Lady Chapel or Chapel of Miracles, which stands directly over the place where Magnus established his monastic cell in 1157. The statue is a small (48 cm tall) Romanesque wooden figure of the seated Virgin Mary holding the Christ Child. In the Baby's hands are an apple and a fig, calling to mind the Fall of Adam, but also Christ's redemption of mankind. Both Mary and Jesus are almost entirely covered in rich garments and wear golden, jewel-encrusted crowns. Pilgrims who have received a blessing after praying to Our Lady of Mariazell leave ex-votos (gifts "out of thanks") at the shrine. As a testament to Mariazell's great popularity, the ex-votos represent one of the greatest numbers of nationalities of any Catholic shrine.

Isabel antonieta baldivieso alvarezI was in this Basilica. It was wonderful. Visited with the mother General Edeltraut Wittmann, after prayer we went for a coffee with cream accompanied by the delicious apple strudel. I want to know if the Virgin is the Virgen del Rosario, or simply to remember the birth of the Virgin. Thank you.show original
